Today, we’ll be taking a look at one of the biggest gyms in MMA.
The Mirror gym has had a busy year, with its owner, MMA legend, former UFC fighter, and current UFC fighter Anthony Pettis signing with the promotion.
Now that Pettis is set to fight in front of his home crowd for the first time in over a year, the Mirror gym is looking to build its fan base and reach a new level of popularity.
For this interview, I talked to MMA fighter, former MMA fighter and current fighter Anthony “Pettis” Pettis.
In this interview I will be discussing Pettis career, how he was inspired by the Mirror, the MMA universe and the future of MMA.
MMA Junkie: You’re known for being the first and most visible fighter to sign with UFC.
Why was it important for you to come back to MMA?
Anthony Pettis: MMA has always been a great sport.
The sport has been great to me for so long.
I started fighting when I was in elementary school.
I fought my first professional fight when I started out, and it was in the high school.
Then I had a couple more fights before I got my first UFC fight.
Then that first fight with Tony Pettis, I was a champion.
So, it was a great opportunity for me to get back into the sport.
MMA has never really had a champion, so when I got back into it, I never thought it would be as big as it has become.
I got into MMA after watching my first MMA movie, The Last Fight.
I saw the movie, and I knew it was going to be big.
I was like, “That’s great, but how are they going to get me into the UFC?”
They brought me in and I was going into training.
The movie came out, but the movie never really went anywhere, so I wasn’t doing anything.
So I just kind of left it at that.
I think I got signed, but I don’t know.
I didn’t really know anything about it.
I had no idea how big the UFC was.
So that was kind of a big step for me, just kind a step.
When I started working out with the UFC, I didn�t know a whole lot about the organization.
I knew that they were going to have a training camp, but didn�ts know what that was going of.
So my first training camp was with a UFC guy.
Then we were working with an American team, and they started to develop a lot of new fighters.
Then they started getting a little bit more into the MMA scene, so they brought me into training camps and training camp with the likes of Tito Ortiz and Rashad Evans.
How long have you been working with the MMA world?
Anthony Pettes: I started training at the age of 14 or 15.
I worked with a lot different guys.
My first training session with Tito and Rashid Evans was at the Cage Warriors, where Tito was fighting.
I never really trained with anyone else in the world, but Tito came in and he was training with me.
I also trained with Joe Lauzon at Cage Warriors.
Then Joe Lauz did a couple of UFC fights, and then I trained with Titos last fight, which was a victory over Tony Pettins.
Tito is really a great guy.
He was my coach for a long time.
Then, I went to Cage Warriors and they have the best fighters in the UFC.
So Tito helped me train with them and train with Titoes other fighters.
And I think he did a really good job with me, because he did the work with me and he helped me get the best out of me.
It was the first UFC event I ever fought in.
I would never have dreamed that this would happen.
I just love fighting, I love being in the cage.
I love it, and Tito did a great job.
I got to fight Tito at Cage Warrior, and when I saw Tito fight, I got really excited.
I wanted to go out there and do my best.
It was just an honor to fight that fight.
That was the moment when I became the best that I could be.
It took me a while to get over the hump, because I wasn�t really training for the UFC until the UFC got in the mix.
When the UFC came into the mix, I started doing a lot more training.
I trained really hard.
Why did you decide to come to MMA, and what kind of training did you do?
Anthony “Peters” Pettes : I came into training in January, I think.
I took a lot, I trained hard and I got a lot out of it.
So when I came back, I just started to get into training again, and started to build myself back up. My first
